Sun, Sand and Rock Shrimp Beach Day

Price From:

$110.00

Tour Overview

Are you ready for an escape from the sweaty crowds of the Orlando theme parks with Original Orlando Tours to a hidden local beach at Cape Canaveral? If so, we’ll be by to pick you up and leave behind Disney, Universal Studios and Sea World behind for a day to enjoy the pristine sands of one of the most private and beautiful beaches in Florida!

Located on a barrier island near Cape Canaveral, this 25 miles of pristine Atlantic Ocean beach, dunes and Mosquito Lagoon is the longest expanse of undeveloped land along the East Coast of Florida. This stretch of sand on the Atlantic Ocean is a federally protected area and largely only known to local Central Floridians. You will also have some extraordinary views of the Kennedy Space Center from your Cape Canaveral beach paradise!

Enjoy up to 2 hours of beach time before we head to lunch at a legendary iconic restaurant for freshly caught rock shrimp (other options available). Rock shrimp is a local delicacy which tastes much like lobster and melts in your mouth like butter.

After your day away with Original Orlando Tours, you arrive back refreshed and re-charged to head back into the throngs of the tourist zone for the rest of your Orlando vacation!

Sunny’s Local Tips and Bits:

Rock shrimp were once considered “garbage shrimp” (they were also known as “peanuts”, “trash” and “hardheads”) and were largely ignored by fisherman because their hard shells made them difficult to eat. In 1968 local fisherman Rodney Thompson designed a high-speed tail splitter and started Cape Canaveral Shrimp to process rock shrimp from a growing fleet of boats based in Port Canaveral. Today over 5 million pounds of rock shrimp are harvested each year; most of that haul is still processed at Cape Canaveral Shrimp for distribution around the world. Sunny recommends having your rock shrimp served broiled and dipped in butter, just like lobster!

Other:

This tour is only offered in English. Florida weather is unpredictable and may impact the tour. If the weather is deemed unsafe by our guide due to weather conditions prior to commencement of the tour, Original Orlando Tours will offer a substitute tour at the original day and time, offer a credit to be used on any future Original Orlando Tours adventure, or fully refund the tour fee, the choice of which is at the option of our special guests impacted by the weather disruption. There are no refunds once the tour has commenced (i.e., the vehicle has left your departure point). This tour also includes an Orlando discount savings booklet. We suggest wearing a hat, comfortable shoes and sunscreen to make your tour an enjoyable one in warm months as well as a jacket in cooler weather.

    "Still thinking about rock shrimp"
    Had probably some of the best shrimp I have ever had on this trip, it is like a mini lobster that explodes with flavor in your mouth, I am still thinking about it! I have to do this trip again!

    "Perfect day at the beach"
    After a weekend at the theme parks and endless crowds this tour was exactly what we needed. There was no hassle and the guide was so helpful and informative, I finally got to relax and enjoy myself without having to think about anything. I recommend this for a change of pace!

    "Check out Kennedy Space Center"
    KSC is one of those things where if you're already over on the coast you would be crazy not to visit. It felt like our guide has inside information with all the knowledge and stories he had about the area and history. Be prepared if you go to space station after the beach it can be a long day after being in the sun so hydrate and enjoy!

    "First time in Florida "
    This was our first time in Florida so I had been asking around my coworkers if they had any suggestions on what to do if they had been there. There was a lot of the typical theme park suggestions, but someone mentioned doing some local stuff and sent me to this company to take a look. I am so happy she did because this ended up being one of the most fun things I have done on vacation, the guide was very accommodating and funny and made us really feel at home. When I visit Florida these are the kinds of things I want to do, thank you!

    I was reminded today why I came to Florida. Beautiful non-crowded beach; rock shrimp tastes like mini-lobsters.
